***UPDATED – Main Gate works has now moved to 10-11th September and final follow up work to complete the CCTV upgrade will be on 2nd September***
We will be undertaking some minor upgrade works to the CCTV and Main Gate over the next couple of weeks.
Final work will be undertaken on 2nd September as a follow up from previous work on 12-13th August by SECOM to add two additional cameras and move the position of two existing cameras. This is being undertaken to improve coverage of the central roadway areas and the riverwall entrance. The addition of extra cameras was discussed at the last AGM and care has been taken to ensure this upgrade in keeping with the requirements set out during the original CCTV consultation.
SECOM have confirmed that they will be following government COVID-19 working practices. There may be some minor disruption in the form of drilling noise during working hours – especially for residents in Blocks 1,2,3 & 4 (Flats).
Work will be undertaken on 27-28th August by WLS to upgrade and resolve intermittent closure issues with the main entrance gate. This work will involve upgrades to the automated mechanism with a more modern higher power one, correction to resolve one of the gates that has dropped over time and ensuring that safety systems meet the latest requirements. The upgrades should make the gates much more reliable and quieter in operation. The upgrades will prevent strong winds from causing issues with gate closure. Furthermore, the wheel, which causes a lot of noise, will no longer be required.
WLS have advised they will ensure the gate will remain accessible during this time and that the gate will not be left open overnight on 27th August. They have also confirmed they will be following government COVID-19 working practices. Disruption for residents should be minimal although those in Block 4 (Flats 53-62) may experience some drilling noise during working hours as part of the work to lift and refit the right hand gate that has dropped.
